    A Woman's Priorities

    A female 'Apprentice' winner has apparently quit her highly paid job with Lord Sugar after becoming pregnant ..... for a second time.

    "In 2008, Lord Sugar courted controversy when he claimed maternity laws had gone ‘too far’ and put employers off hiring women of childbearing age. He has also said bosses must be able to ask women employees about their plans for the future, including having children and childcare arrangements."

    Just plain common sense from Lord Sugar, in fact I'd say that employers should be able to ask prospective employees anything about their lives outside work in order to gain a fuller picture of the sort of people they are. It is NOT just about their ability to do the job, but whether they will fit in and show at least some loyalty to their employer.

    How about employers showing some loyalty to the working class?

    Employers are just as replaceable as workers.

    Any questions?
